F. B. Unel, I. B. Gundogdu, and S. Yalpir
Abstract—Geographic Information System, in which a lot of information is disciplined, is a technique that makes life easier. It is called Multimedia Geographic Information System (MMGIS) due to the association with geographic information of multimedia data such as text, audio, photo and video. The system which appeal both to the eye and to the ear yields cultural, scientific and popular benefits on the subject. In the era of mobile communications, multimedia information system, provided from the internet, will attract more attention from tourists, and it will be used easily. The tourism sector which has important cultural, economic and social aspects should be addressed at large. Promotion of countries and regions needs to be handled properly. The promotion may be best realized through the internet broadcasting and mobile phones. The system is expected to contribute to tourism sector by providing access to visual information easily, quickly, and in a quality way through mobile technology. In this context, attempts have been made to create MMGIS by handling Mevlana Mausoleum and the environment in Konya as a sample application.
